In the Book In the Movie
   The story begins with Mark Watney giving his first Log Entry. The film begins with the crew of the Ares 3 discovering the storm and aborting the mission.
   While the Hermes crew saves him, Mark stays buckled and is in mental/physical distress from takeoff Mark is perched just inside the nose cone opening all excited and ready to go
   During the process of making the water from the hydrazine, Mark says the alarms are constantly blaring. He never hears any alarms.
   Annie delivers the news to the media that Mark is still alive. Teddy gives the speech.
